On the eve of Anzac Day, a special planting ceremony took place in the grounds of Sydney University. The Glebe Society had donated a Gallipoli Pine sapling to the University in memory of all who fought, but particularly in memory of the Glebe men who were associated with the University of Sydney as academics, support staff or students and who enlisted in World War I.
The Vice-Chancellor, Dr Michael Spence, took up the ceremonial shovel and accomplished the planting with skill and dispatch. Glebe Society President, Ted McKeown was amongst the onlookers who encouraged the V-C in his efforts. The sapling is located on the eastern side of the tennis courts which themselves are near the gates opposite Derwent St.
Thanks to Glebe Society member Lydia Bushell for her valuable help with this project.
